Programs and services offered by Wellmont's neuroscience program include several decompression options, including diskectomy, laminectomy and spinal fusion, that can be performed microscopically or open. In these procedures, the bone over the nerves and spinal canal are removed to take away the pressure. Wellmont also actively contributes to ongoing research in the field of neuroscience, helping pave the way to future advancements in neurology and neurologic treatment solutions.
The road to recovery from neurologic and nerve disorders or
surgery can also be a challenging one. Wellmont provides a wide range of inpatient
